Magical Mr Big moment for Preity

MUMBAI:

If you saw Preity Zinta dimpling more prettily this past weekend, it’s because she got to spend time with her friend Ness Wadia in Shillong and saw the live performance of her favourite American hard rock band Mr Big.

“Ness has just left. And it was a good holiday for him,” Preity said.

Earlier, over the weekend, Preity had one of her long time dreams come true. She attended a concert by one of her favourite rock bands Mr Big and also got invited on stage by the band’s lead singer Eric Martin.

“Saturday evening I was told Mr Big were performing in town. I was like...Wow! I grew up listening to their songs like Wild world and Just to be with you. I decided come what may, I have to attend the concert.”

Preity relived some of her favourite 1980s’ songs and danced in the aisles during the show. But the thrill wasn’t over. Mid-way through the concert, Mr Big stopped short in their tracks to announce they’ve a very special guest at the concert.

“And to my utter delight and embarrassment Mr Big announced my name and asked me to come on stage.

I could have just died.

Man, what a moment! I felt like a schoolgirl out on her first date. It was what one calls a magical moment,” said Preity.
